The Holi fair of Tira Sujanpur (State fair) is celebrated in Chaugan (Ground) of Sujanpur in the month of March every year. The big Chaugan also attracts the attention of the people coming to the town during the fair. Such huge grounds are rare in hilly areas of India. Thousands of men, women and children attired in colorful dresses throng the historic Chaugan here to take part in the state-level Holi festivals colorful start in March every year. The festival became famous during the rule of great King Sansar Chand who was also instrumental in flourishing the Kangra paintings, which are still known worldwide.
